3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
What I do very much believe in is going with my own flow - this is a principle for which I have no scientific mechanism to explain it with - it just works! I subscribe to the Eastern philosophy that energy flows round the body in ways that Western technology cannot detect. Anxiety and overthinking disrupts this flow, and, if continuous, causes chaos and consequently illness within the bodymind.
I have learned that Western thinking puts too much emphasis on the logical mind and attempts to apply logical algorithms to everything. The reality is that when you attempt to do this when you don't have all the data, the consequence is anxiety. Conscious logic is great for technological development and construction, but not for living life, in which there are an infinity of variables!
Instead, once you have consciously arrived at your purpose, you do not need a formulaic plan, only the awareness to seize the opportunities that cross your path from moment to moment. The energy of consciousness needs to be mainly devoted to tasting the moment with all of the senses, focusing on gratitude. For everything else, it's best not to interfere with a bodymind quite capable of running itself.
I have found that when I relax and allow my body to run itself and my intuition to guide me, I can physically feel the energy flowing through me, around me and out of me. It feels extremely pleasant!
It's taken a lifetime of experience to reach this point of awareness and I've barely begun to wield it. However the struggle to get here has also made me intensely appreciative of it.

9. ZEN WISDOM
It is not about how others are or how society is. The most important thing is to ask yourself is “What will I do?” One who stands up with moral courage and conviction can change society and create waves of transformation around the world.
